This is a very well crafted scent from start to finish and by far the best of any of the Ralph Lauren fragrances for men other than my other favorite Safari which is equally as outdoorsy but hotter and more aggressive than this soothing scent.
It has a mature connotation, as if only your father or grandfather can pull it off, but if you're in you're late 20's and in your 30's, and you're a guy who wears tuxedos business suits and have a business of your own, you're.
It opens with bergamot orange citrus, not too strong, just fresh and aromatic, like getting a whiff of a mountain's natural aroma when you first arrive in the countryside.
Reminds me of the opening to a lot of similar green scents like Coty's Aspen and Green Irish Tweed.This fragrance describes a tall dark and handsome man in a suit, although it has enough of that outdoorsy scent to suit a mountain man or lumberjack.When you wear it you're transported into the Catskills in the spring time, or the woods and hills of West Virginia and the Poconos in Pennsylvania.Polo reminds me of other big green scents like Tsar by Van Cleef Arpels my personal favorite "green".The rest of it is not as floral as it is green and woodsy with cedar wood, patchouli, leather and musk, tobacco leaves, and vetiver.It has a dual persona.But overall, the opening is spicy with caraway and pepper and that fresh citrus, providing the top notes with a good powerful prelude to the rest of the cologne's music.There's artemisia, basil, coriander, and some light florals of which the geranium is most noticeable.
There is also a jasmine and carnation which far from smelling feminine, even with a note of rose, is like spiced up flowers that have a sweet air.The thing about Polo is that it seems to be a throwback to those woodsy colognes for men from the 1940's and 1950's.Polo Green, here we promo codes for nordstrom 2014 have one of the most gorgeous man chypres of all time.So if you like green chypres for men, this is a masterpiece.The pine note in particular stands out and matches up with that patchouli.Ralph Lauren is a good old American label and it's good to have a superb fragrance that is not coming out of Europe.This is the heart of the fragrance.The sweetness is also present in the juniper berry note.As a classic, it evokes classic males from Old Hollywood like Clark Gable, Cary Grant, James Stewart, Fred Astaire or even the likes of Jeff Chandler.A CEO executive who likes to go camping when on vacation.
